Kwara schools to resume amid strict adherence to COVID-19 protocol



Tertiary institutions in Kwara will resume on January 11, 2021, under strict adherence to COVID-19 safety protocols, a statement from the government said on Friday.

Rafiu Ajakaye, Chief Press Secretary to the State Government and Spokesman for Technical Committee on COVID-19, made the announcement in a statement issued in Ilorin.

“Government has directed that the tertiary institutions should put in place appropriate safety protocols to prevent the spread of the virus on their campuses.

“The coordinating ministry is to work with the state technical committee on COVID-19 and other stakeholders to ensure that schools do not take safety rules for granted.

“Specifically, the use of face mask is mandatory on the campus and in lecture rooms. Authorities are not to allow anyone, students or otherwise, into college facilities without the use of the face mask.

“Similarly, elementary schools in the state are scheduled to resume on Jan. 18, subject to new developments on the pandemic,” it said.

The government enjoined citizens to take responsibility for their own safety by adhering to protocols already outlined to flatten the curve of transmission as COVID-19 appears to have come to stay.
